What is SEO?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This is the process of optimizing website content in order to be seen by an online audience. There are 2 major kinds of SEO, On-Site SEO and Off-Site SEO. They both use different processes and practices in order to get both free and organic traffic.
The major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing have different search engine algorithms that prioritize websites for keywords searched.
These search engines have more than 2 trillion searches a year which is why SEO is such an important factor for businesses.
Over the years many SEO Companies in Miami and other businesses have used techniques such as Black Hat SEO in order to influence the search engine. This allows them to place their websites over. There’s nothing wrong with trying to rank high, however the methods that Black Hat SEO employs manipulate the system with low quality links, keyword stuffing, cloaking, hidden text, and more. These techniques can hinder the experience users look for when searching a term. For this reason search engines update their algorithm constantly and now penalize companies that do “Black Hat SEO”.
With this in mind Business Network Designs out of Miami utilizes White Hat SEO techniques that seek to improve the website and user experience by providing an optimized website with URLS, Headings, Titles, and Descriptions along with high quality content that let the search engine know what the website is about so that users can find the website. The benefit of White Hat SEO is that it has steady but gradual growth towards high positioning in the rankings.
The higher the keyword the better click through rate, the better click through rate to your website the higher the chance at converting a visitor into a customer.
For this reason and many more SEO is a word that should be synonymous with online visibility.

SEO improves a websites visibility for many keywords. This in turn makes it easier for your target demographic to find you without having to have a precise website url or even know about you beforehand.
With a well setup website it can sell for you and create an online profile for your business that can accomplish more than is possible using other methods. With over 2 trillion searches a year a business can have an essentially limitless audience with the possibility to grow without the overhead that traditional methods of marketing and sales would need.
It’s not the product and the service of your business that can impact growth but the delivery method of that product and service and SEO is one of the most cost effective methods available to impact that growth.

There are ways to get penalized for poor practices in SEO and you want to make sure that your business and any businesses dealing with your business don’t employ those methods.
SEO versus Pay per Click
Miami SEO vs Pay Per Click
SEO vs Pay Per Click Miami
A lot of our Miami companies come to us and ask us which is better SEO or Pay per Click and we always tell them that it depends on their goals. Pay per click is essentially a form of advertising and usually involves advertising a keyword through a search engine or a social network. The way it works is that a business sets for themselves a budget and then they pay an auction price for the right to be seen for that keyword on the different search engines and social networks. The business with the higher bid amount and budget will be seen the most. Pay per Click is a great method for companies that have some marketing revenue to spend and have customers that have a life time value that heavily supersedes the cost of customer acquisition.
Essentially, if there is a big ROI or return on your investment this is a method you want to employ. However, even with this method the search engine takes SEO into consideration. When Google calculates bids it takes into consideration a quality score that determine the cost and position of your landing page for the keyword you’re promoting. For this reason SEO even when looking at Pay per click is important.
The most important factor to consider is that SEO can be free. You build your brand and content and allow the search engine to find it. In addition to that you connect your site to high authority websites and eventually your website starts to see its growth.
For these reasons there is no straight answer to SEO vs Pay per Click. They both help businesses in different ways and every company needs to decide what their goals are and which one should have the higher priority.
A lot of our clients do both and we have SEO experts on our staff that can help customers have the best margins possible when trying to acquire business online. Our headquarters in Miami Florida can help your business with either SEO or Google Adwords.
What’s the Cost for SEO?
One of the 1st questions we get from businesses is what’s the cost for SEO?

While we do have a pricing chart the first thing we look at with our Miami and Nationwide businesses is what their websites looks like. In order for SEO to be effective it starts with a website, after we’ve analyzed the website we look at the company’s marketing goals. Once we’ve determined where the site is at and the vision we give our recommendations. At times there might be so much to do with the website in order to have it up to standard that we might have to do website development. In which case we have one time and monthly payment options to help our customers.
However, if we’re just doing online marketing we base the cost on the amount of keywords the company is looking to be seen for. This will determine the amount of work we’ll be doing for the business.
We are a very ethical when it comes to business practices and are consistent with our pricing. One thing we’ve seen many Miami SEO companies do is look at a business and try and fill the budget of that business for marketing, while we stick to the pricing on our chart. We are one of the most affordable SEO companies in the marketplace today and price value and quality above all.
When looking at cost think of the goal your business has and after that evaluate your margins and then determine what the lifetime value of a customer is for your business. Based on that information set a budget for yourself and contact us. We have customers that didn’t have a huge budget to begin with when they started and they’ve grown despite a small budget.
Our biggest goal is to help businesses rank at the top. Your success is our success and a future case study for us.
How Long Does it Take to Rank?

Affordable SEO Ranking in Miami
The number one reason businesses higher SEO experts is to see them build a campaign that allows the business to be seen and rank high enough that a customer visits the website.
It is however hard to calculate the time it will take to grow a keyword on a search engine, without knowing about the market because every industry is different. Competition and keyword visits are big factors. However, there is a process towards being seen. Most companies feel safe in saying that it will take 5-6 months to help a business rank.
*NOTE-this is not the case all the time. It can take less or more, there are too many variables to calculate this accurately. What you see below is what we see as an average. Although we’ve seen some companies show up in weeks.
The process is something like this: (Can’t give it all away)
Keywords & Competition are researched.
Keywords are implemented on to the website for On-Site SEO.
Takes about a month for the keywords to be properly indexed.
The Search Engine will place the keyword at some position past the 10th page. But this is normal asit needs to see the keyword and place it somewhere before it can even have the hope of moving up.
We usually began the link building campaigns somewhere during this month using article submissions on high ranking sites with good authority. The anchor texts we place on these articles link back to your website and help the growth of those keywords on the search engine.
Keyword movement at this time is visible. The amount of impressions for the keywords are very high and the keywords just need time, some fresh content, and indexing.
During this month we create more submissions to search engines and implement other techniques with link building to help the words grow as they reach the top of the search engine.
By the 5th month most keywords are at the top or near.
At this time if the campaign was effective and the keyword chosen was thought out right it should be ranking on the 1st page.
After this whole process it’s still important that content is always being added and that SEO is continued on the website because there is always someone in your field marketing themselves. So keeping your content fresh and continuous work on your website will be a huge factor in continued high page ranking positioning.
